Global Student Accommodation Group (GSA) announced the launch of ‘Uninest Student Residences' in Dubai to meet the growing demand for dedicated student accommodation in the country.

Offering the first non-campus, student residential building in Dubai, Uninest Residences will open to students studying at all universities from February 2016.

Uninest is situated in Dubailand, just 10 minutes from Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) and 25 minutes from other major education hubs in Dubai.

Fran Turner, group operations manager for GSA Group adds: “We are delighted to be launching Uninest Student Residences in Dubai. Our focus is on providing the ultimate living environment for students to thrive academically as well as enjoy their living experience during their studies.”

“By launching the first dedicated student accommodation facility in the Emirate we are aiming to bridge the gap between the current private rental market offering and the under-supply of university campus student housing. For the first time, students studying in Dubai will have access to the dedicated student living experience they would ordinarily access in the UK, USA, Australia and other more traditional markets. We believe this will also further boost Dubai as a regional education hub.”

“With Dubai’s growth rate of higher education participation exceeding the global average there is a critical need to meet the supply-demand gap faced by this growing knowledge based economy. Building on our 25 years of international experience, we have worked closely with university partners to support their growth through the key provision of dedicated, purpose-designed student accommodation of the best quality.” Turner continued.

At Uninest Student Residences, students can choose from a variety of gender-segregated accommodation options. The flexible and affordable rental options are all-inclusive of furniture, utility bills, a scheduled shuttle bus, as well as high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the property.

A dedicated student services team is also available 24/7 to ensure the safety and welfare of student residents. The living-learning environment comes with study rooms, I-MAC computer stations and relaxing facilities for students to enjoy including common rooms, a dining area and roof terrace with pool and gymnasium.

GSA Group has established over 60,000 student beds in its 25 years of experience worldwide through building and managing safe, secure and culturally-adapted student accommodation.
